[darwinbuild-dev] Startup problem

I'm not sure if I'm in good shape yet or not.  Could you please have a
look at the attached file.  My build did quite a lot of stuff and took
quite a bit of time, but I'm not sure if it was fully successful.  It
did produce what appeared to me to be some error messages.  Also I'm not
finding a file produced named "mach_kernel", but it's been my experience
that files with this name are difficult to see with Finder.  Apparently
it likes to hide them.  (By the way, if you could tell me how to find
files named "mach_kernel" I would appreciate it much.)  Thanks in

David lee

-init takes a path to a build plist, or a build number in which case
it'll get the plist from the svn repo. You probably want "... -init
10J869" here instead. See the plists directory in the repo for other
build choices.
